This combo set gets you a Longboard Rack with our SUP Lower Bar set included in one package. The SUP Lower Bar Sets provide space for SUPs up to 6" thick, which includes most inflatable SUPs. May also be useful for carrying two lighter boards or other thicker objects
USING OUR RACKS WITH SUPS
Our longboard racks are well suited for use with SUPs with the following limitations:
- We recommend the racks for boards up to about 25 lbs.
- Heavier boards are hard to ride with off the side of the bike and will exceed the load capacity of the bars.
- SUPs are wide and you will need clearance under your handlebar. For the most part, this means you can only carry a SUP with a beach cruiser with a high-rise set of cruiser bars.
The video below was produced by a Moved By Bikes customer and shared with us.
We thought it was so good we wanted to share it here. Please note that we always recommend using some kind of straps or cords to retain larger boards in the racks, but in this video, an alternate approach is shown of wedging the board in place with a paddle. Straps are most effective when pulled from the rack eyelet up and over the top of the board and then all the way over to the bike frame. This will pull the top of the board toward the bike and greatly improve stability of the board in the racks.
This item is a combination of a full Longboard Rack Set with the SUP Lower Bars included.
